We can find hundreds of articles on the internet irresponsible parents who send their sick children to kindergartens and thus expose other children to infections. They are referred to as per "Egoists", "irresponsible", "of little imagination".

Meanwhile, parents sending children "Only with runny nose and fatigue cough" they have their arguments, which they often do not say for fear of hate and social harassment. They don't talk about certain things, but they do theirs. The result is that children with signs of infection have been and are in kindergarten. Can't you do anything about it?

Often, kindergarten staff also do not respond, for one simple reason, unofficially claiming that it is normal for children to run hot, if they were left at home there would be very few children, and that is not the point ...

Is this really a disease?

Catherine: "For me, a runny nose, a little cough without fever and a child's well-being are not a disease. However, I do not understand when parents release a suffocating kid stuffed with drugs to kindergarten, this is an inflection. "

Marta: From such a runny nose and coughing, infection develops and others at this stage become infected and, for example, my infected will not have a runny nose. My child in the middle of the night will sit unconscious on the bed and begin to choke because he reacts in this way, the larynx closes with each infection, so for me it's a really weak argument ... "

Agata: "As one child is only having a cold, we will have inhalations, antibiotics or injections."

Why do parents send sick children to kindergarten?

Most because are convinced that the child is healthy and can go to kindergarten. The arguments are simple: the child has no fever, is not weakened, irritable, on the contrary - he enjoys playing, is active, happy. He knows how to blow his nose himself, he knows that it is necessary to cover his mouth when coughing. It is clear that he does not always remember these rules when mom or dad are not there ... However, he is in good condition and there is no point in sitting at home.

What are the other party's arguments? A small runny nose of one child, which will disappear in a few days in another, will lead to complications in the form of bronchitis, pneumonia. More sensitive children don't need much. All it takes is a small infection to start, and a whole avalanche starts ... It is not surprising that the parents of such children are struggling to keep even kindergarten children in the kindergarten, because they are afraid of what this "light runny nose" can lead to in their toddlers .

Take care of your children's immunity!

Another argument from parents sending tortured children to kindergarten? This is the one in the category below the belt: "Take care of your children's immunity, they will go through a simple runny nose and not immediately an infection for which you need to take antibiotics". Natalia adds: "If mommies didn't give antibiotics to sneeze, kids would have more immunity and there would be no fear that the second preschooler would sneeze and the first one would get bronchitis immediately."

Ewa adds: "If a person's contact with a dusty kid ends up with a serious infection every time, kindergarten is probably not the best place for him."

Supporters of hardening children, by allowing them contact with microorganisms, emphasize that it is necessary to change everything so that the children's immune system is strong, react efficiently, so that there are as few diseases as possible. Fear of runny nose is not the way to go ...

In the West, tortured children in kindergartens are the norm

Dominika: "In the Scandinavian countries, children go to kindergarten sick, but also go outside every day, regardless of the weather. They are not overheated, they do not wear hats. Contact with microbes must also be. At first it shocked me, but now I see that after each illness my child is getting stronger. A glass bubble is also not a good solution. "

Maryla: "It's normal in Norway. Only if the child has a high fever, they call their parents. Most of the time they are sitting outside, instead of being silent in Poland.

Kasia: "There is a hysteria in Poland, an antibiotic for any infection, children are sick because they have nothing resistance. In the Netherlands, when a child coughs or sneezes, he has a runny nose, it is an obligation to bring them to kindergarten or school ... "

Parents sending "slightly sick" sick children to kindergarten refer to the approach of their parents from the west. They emphasize that abroad nobody shakes over a runny nose and does not lock a child in a glass ball. In addition, they indicate that they themselves operate with a runny nose and do not take dismissal because of it. Anyway, that's how most people live ...

The kindergarten would be closed

In unofficial conversations in kindergarten he learns: "Children go with coughs, runny nose, this is the norm, especially from October to March."

I ask shyly what to do about it. An experienced teacher answers: "You know how it should be, but I don't know what's better. As if to leave all those tortured children at home, there would be less than half of the children in kindergarten, then such a child would come back and again not come, because he would catch a runny nose again ... ".

Another teacher tells me about immunization that her experience shows that children have to face bacteria, viruses, that they usually get sick initially, but then there is less and less infection, and that the worst of the child is to "puff and blow" and keep under the shade. Quite a controversial thesis, but maybe not without its validity?

Infections can be caught everywhere

Parents of children attending kindergartens with a runny nose or cough emphasize that kindergarten is a cluster of people, that there is no chance to eliminate pathogens from it and that in the season of infection the disease can be caught everywhere, even on a walk.

They add that the fact that children are sick is the norm and that it is not without reason that the babies are called "snot" because endless runny nose and upper respiratory tract infections are typical for this age ...

The body must have time to become immunized

A very common argument of parents in favor of sending children with a slight infection to kindergartens is the possibility of immunization. The translation is such that children can not be protected from all threats, and in the first years of life, diseases are natural. A parent looking at their child is able to assess whether he is healthy or sick and whether he can go to kindergarten.

The correctness of the arguments cited above can be discussed.

However, outside the field of conversation are situations where parents, for fear of losing their job, before sending another dismissal, send children to kindergarten:

  • with infectious diseases - rota infections, smallpox, Boston disease, etc.,
  • "Stuffed with drugs" to hide the symptoms of the disease, there are known cases of administering a suppository in the morning to reduce a fever,
  • clearly weak, tired, needing peace to recover.

Certainly there is no consent to sending children "by force to kindergarten". A sick, listless, tired, clearly suffering child should stay at home. In other cases, if your child has a cold - you can discuss whether sending your child to kindergarten is a good idea. Opinions, whether we like it or not, are divided, both among parents, as well as doctors and kindergarten employees.
